Trump says that Russian Federation should be reinstated as a G8 member

That comment has Trump squarely offside with this fellow G7 leaders, including Canada, who view Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula and its meddling in western elections as a major worldwide security concern.

He said: "I have been Russia's worst nightmare". Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau already had a testy telephone conversation with Trump earlier this week and French President Macron said Thursday that he's cool with only six countries signing an agreement "if need be".

Trump's "America First" message to allies has hardened since he brought hard-charging national security adviser John Bolton on to his team.

Donald Trumps's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal also demonstrated his reluctance to toe the line of his allies.

"International law prohibits the acquisition of part or all of another state's territory through coercion or force", former President Barack Obama and other world leaders said in a statement at the time.

At stake is the risk of tit-for-tat tariffs between the major western economies turning into an unrestrained trade war.

Trump is no fan of the world's multilateral institutions, and that has him on a collision course with his fellow G7 leaders, creating the so-called G6-plus-one dynamic.

Trump will meet with Macron and Trudeau face-to-face on Friday.

Trump will skip out on G-7 meetings about climate change, clean energy and ocean protection.

Macron said he and Trudeau discussed their "common vision of the world, " adding that "this period is marked by great challenges".

U.S. President Donald Trump raised eyebrows Friday by suggesting Russian Federation should be allowed to rejoin the elite group of leading industrialized nations now known as the Group of Seven or G7.

Friday's trade session, where G7 allies planned to confront the US president over trade tariffs, had "some emotions" but was civilized and diplomatic, said the official who followed the talks. The Italian leader could turn out to be one of the friendliest faces for Trump at the G7 summit in Charlevoix, as his new populist government also stands for protectionist trade policies.

On the eve of the summit, Trump lashed out on Twitter at Macron and Trudeau, who earlier Friday criticized Trump's trade stance a joint news conference in Ottawa.

"On Russia rejoining the G7, our position has not changed", said Adam Austen, spokesman for Canada's foreign affairs minister Chrystia Freeland. The raid, made in revenge for the American burning of York - present-day Toronto - the previous year, saw the British briefly capture and set fire to the USA capital.

"Let's leave seven as it is", Tusk said. He's proven himself to be a leader on the world stage, " Kudlow told a Washington briefing. "So I don't think there's any issue there at all".

Host Canada and its European allies are striving to put together a united front to oppose Trump's tariffs of aluminum, steel, cars and other exports, but the markets are rattled.

The suspension was supported by the other members of the group, including the US, Canada, Japan and four European nations.
